Although we still have Monday night football to look forward to, this already looks like another sub par week for my team, with captain Kane failing to deliver. My pick of the week Dele Alli scored but the Coutinho injury news made me hold fire on my planned double swoop meaning I missed out on Alli’s points.
Dawson, Nyom, Van Dijk
Mahrez, Mane, Cabaye, De Bruyne
Lukaku (C), Kane , Vardy
Week points (so far): 51
Overall points: 918
Overall rank: 493
Transfers remaining: 23/40
Money in the bank: 0.5mil
The only good news here is that I went another week without spending a transfer, which will hopefully pay off later down the line. I’m also hopeful of a small rank rise tonight once captain Lukaku and Cabaye have played.
Mahrez hat trick was the stand out performance of the weekend, an in form Liverpool came up short against a rejuvenated looking Newcastle and a stuttering Chelsea team again failed to deliver.
The Liverpool team in particular is a bit of a conundrum, despite the loss at Newcastle they have the form and fixtures to deliver some points but picking an asset appears to be a bit of a lottery. The only ones that I will consider are Coutinho and possibly Sturridge if they can get guaranteed game time.
Chelsea look one to avoid for now, I thought they were beginning to get some form back and expected them to win comfortably against Bournemouth, but Hazard and co again came up short. They are going to need to show me more before I invest.
New SFFF League!
I have set up a new Sky Fantasy Football Forum league. It’s free to enter, so just a bit of fun to see how you compare to the rest of the (growing!) SFFF community.
You can enter the League via this link: https://fantasyfootball.skysports.com/leagues/view/8181399
I have reset the captain poll – this week looks like an interesting one with a quite a few possible options. There will also be some articles and polls lined up for the week with a new Sky Watchlist page planned, so be sure to check back in over the next few days!
